The Government has proposed that the Act on Temporary Communicable Disease Control Measures at Venues Serving Food and Drink should continue to apply until the end of September 2021.
This is due to the continued high spread of COVID-19, the burden on health and medical care and the fact that the COVID-19 Act applies until the end of September 2021. The Act applies for a limited period of time and has already been extended once.
The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal. The amendment will come into force on 31 May 2021 and will cease to apply at the end of September 2021.
